Ogun State Police command arrests Five currency hawkers, recover N1.5m

Five persons have been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly hawking naira notes in different parts of the state. They were Toyin Alegbe, Kehinde Akinbode, Shoneye Latifat, Kehinde Olanrewaju and Iyanuoluwa Shokunbi.

They were arrested in Ijebu Ode, Sagamu and Abeokuta during sting operations jointly carried out by the operatives of the command and officials of Central Bank of Nigeria on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th of April 2018.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the operation was in line with the provisions of Section 21(1) of the CBN Act 2007 which made hawking, selling and abuse of naira a punishable offence.

He said various denominations of naira notes totalling N1,560,000 were recovered from the suspects who were publicly exhibiting their illicit trade. The suspects, he said, would be charged to court soon.

How I found the secret to being mega successful in every area of life by Aziza Uko

Read the piece by Executive Editor of The Trent, Aziza Uko.
As a marketing professional, I had my personal branding management team design a fancy and professional marketing message to tell this story. After it spent a week on my desk awaiting my approval, I have decided to put it aside and just be real. Just me. Speak from my heart... and my heart is filled with love and gratitude right now.

Let me start with a question. Have you ever heard someone tell a story of a miraculous financial breakthrough or health miracle or astonishing relationship success and you said to yourself, “Oh, yeah. That’s too good to be true!” Somehow, you have convinced yourself that what these people say they experiences is embellishment, just can’t be exactly true. Well that used to be me… until Divine Love found me and sent me a friend who invited me for a seminar last year.

At the exclusive meeting, I heard a phenomenal person speak in a way that spoke directly to me and my issues and my trut…

''Nigerian doctors are irresponsible, workers should be paid ‘very low’ minimum wage'' Governor Nasir El-Rufai

Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, yesterday attacked trade unions in Nigeria, accusing them of always pursuing their narrow minded selfish interest without thinking of the good of the country.

Governor Nasir who was speaking at the ‘Governance Matters’ roundtable organised by Development Alternative Incorporation, DAI in Abuja, accused trade unions of always dragging their state chapters into the unnecessary fights with the Federal government.

Governor El-Rufai berated Nigerian doctors for going on strike despite taking an oath to always save lives. He said it is only in Nigeria that doctors go on strike.
The governor in his speech advocated for a cut down in the National minimum wage.
 Trade Unions have never served the country well. They have been selfish and everything is about their narrow interests. In general, in Nigeria, trade unions have been a danger to our progress and I think they should be curtailed. The mistake we made as a country was placing trade union…

China bans children from attending church services in the country

The Chinese Government has banned children from attending churches in the country in a bid to tighten their grip on religious activities. The ban also prohibits children from attending religious sermons and other activities in several provinces across the country.
The ban comes after over one hundred churches in Wenzhou, China's Zhejiang province reportedly received a notice from government officials informing them that young people will be banned from entering churches.
According to UCA News, the ban also promises that officials will investigate government approved churches and underground congregations who operate outside the tightly controlled Beijing-run Catholic and Protestant Churches.
A researcher for Amnesty International, William Nee, who spoke to MailOnline UK, said, “At this point, it’s unclear how widespread the ban on children attending church services are in China, but these alarming reports seem to be coming in from fairly diverse areas throughout the co…

Doctor says Conor McGregor suffered mild traumatic brain injury during TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather

Following the recent boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, Hall-of-Fame referee Robert Byrd came under fire for what appeared to be a premature stoppage, likely because a wobbly McGregor, despite taking heavy damage, was still on his feet when the bout was called.

However, according to former ringside physician Darragh O’Carroll he praised the referee for putting the brain before the brawn, 'Byrd's calculation to call a stoppage was likely not based on signs of fatigue, but rather signs of traumatic brain injury. Ataxia, or dizziness and loss of balance, is one of the hallmarks of concussion, a type of mild traumatic brain injury. Fatigue may cause sluggish and slow movements, but does not cause the imbalance and poor coordination exhibited by McGregor in the 10th round. Being wobbly, in the setting of pugilistic trauma, will always be treated as the result of head trauma and not as fatigue. To let a fighter continue on would be grossly neglig…
